Assam police has directed SPs of all districts to keep a strict vigil to thwart any possible activities of ISIS in the state following the terror strike in Bangladesh.

According to a press release by the Assam Police, all the SPs have been instructed to gear up their intelligence machinery and keep a close watch on the situation.

Although authorities have not perceived any footprint of ISIS in Assam in the recent past, considering the gravity of the situation in the neighbouring country the alert has been issued, it explained.

“The SPs of Cachar, Karimganj and Dhubri, and BSF along the Assam-Bangladesh border have also been cautioned to be on maximum alert,” the statement said.

Several modules of JMB in Assam were busted in the aftermath of Khagragarh blast in Burdwan district of West Bengal on October 2, 2014.
